The services we provide include: an on-call Counselling referral service, a Helpdesk, 13 FAQ Guides on topics ranging from how the Dutch Healthcare system works to Winter Driving, regular Childbirth Preparation courses, a printed Magazine as well as a website full of information about living in the Netherlands, and among the Dutch and, a pool of trainers offering services tailored to the international community.
